You don't have to go to Court to resolve marital disputes
My ex-partner and I disagree over arrangements for our children - Do we have to go to Court?
No, a court application is only a last resort if you can’t reach agreement by another method. First you should try discussing things directly with your ex but if this doesn’t work, a mediator may be able to help. A mediator is a neutral third party who can help you both understand your differences and reach a compromise.
